Inaugural broadcast of a new era of Ben Watson's longrunning (since November 2002) weekly radio show, celebrating the break-up of his political groupuscule the Association of Musical Marxists (AMM): "I am at last free of the dampening and constricting concepts of those who consider finger-wiggling on their iPhones to be a political act," quoth Lunch "Let a new era dawn!". Reflecting the surge of libido unleashed when suddenly freed from the humiliation of a cavilling boss, Out To Lunch takes to the piano on this show, helped a little by fellow spirits Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Les Dawson (Dave "Fez" Ferris from Doncaster should be acknowledged for this particular inspiration). OTL wheels out a new aesthetic theory/manifesto written after perusing Keston Sutherland's Stupefaction (Seagull, 2011) and noting he'll talk about Samuel Beckett and not James Joyce: what has hitherto been perceived by Marxists as a battle between Materialism and Idealism is better described as a battle between Advocates of a Total Critique (Socrates, Jesus, Marx, Freud) and their "systematic" epigones who eviscerate the detail, colour and contradiction of real life in favour of teachable (i.e. saleable) logic (Plato, Paul, Althusser, Lacan). There is a guitar duet by James Wilson and Ashley Cross which will freeze your bun and brake your hot. The graphic poem is called "Far Quiff Frozen Antic" and includes Mordecai on fish.
